  • A Quick-start for Scala and Gradle

    For those interested, here’s a quick and simple project to get you started using Gradle and Scala together:

    build.gradle

    apply plugin: 'scala'
    
    repositories{
        mavenCentral()
        mavenLocal()
    }
    
    dependencies{
        compile 'org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.5'
        compile "org.scala-lang:scala-library:2.10.1"
        testCompile "junit:junit:4.11"
    }
    
    task run(type: JavaExec, dependsOn: classes) {
        main = 'Main'
        classpath sourceSets.main.runtimeClasspath
        classpath configurations.runtime
    }
    
    src/main/scala/Main.scala
    1
    2
    3
    
    object Main extends App {
      println("Hello, world")
    }
    

    You can run the app using the custom task run:

    $ gradle run
    :compileJava
    :compileScala
    :processResources
    :classes
    :run
    Hello, world
    
    BUILD SUCCESSFUL
    
    Total time: 9.79 secs
    

    Remember to add --daemon for faster startup times for your Gradle builds.

    Have fun!

About

My name is Jason Lee. I am a software developer living in the middle of Oklahoma. I’ve been a professional developer since 1997, using a variety of languages, including Java, Javascript, PHP, Python, Delphi, and even a bit of C#. I currently work for Red Hat on the WildFly/EAP team, where, among other things, I maintain integrations for some MicroProfile specs, OpenTelemetry, Micrometer, Jakarta Faces, and Bean Validation. (Full resume here. LinkedIn profile)

I am the president of the Oklahoma City JUG, and an occasional speaker at the JUG and a variety of technical conferences.

On the personal side, I’m active in my church, and enjoy bass guitar, running, fishing, and a variety of martial arts. I’m also married to a beautiful woman, and have two boys, who, thankfully, look like their mother.
